NEW: Online Summer Reading Logs with Beanstack!

Welcome to the 2020 Destin Library Summer Reading Challenge!

How It Works

  • Create your FREE family account on the Destin Library’s Beanstack site. Add your children as Readers and register them for the Read To Me or Children’s Challenge based on their age.
  • Use the Beanstack reading log to keep track of how much your family reads this summer. The Read To Me and Children’s challenges both have the same reading goal: 12 hours between June 1 and July 31, 2020. You can log time spent reading to your children or time they spend reading independently.
  • As you reach reading milestones you’ll earn digital Logging Badges for your Beanstack profile. You’ll also earn two special Challenge Badges: one when you register and one when you complete the challenge. Those Challenge Badges will translate to real-world prizes that you can come pick up from the library and an entry into our Grand Prize Drawing at the end of the summer!

To complete the challenge, we recommend reading an average of 20 minutes a day between June 1 and July 31, 2020 (though you can certainly log more if you like). You can read anything you like: books, ebooks, magazines, and comics all count! You can also listen to audiobooks and podcasts to clock those minutes.

The Read To Me challenge is available for children ages 0-3 to complete with their parents, caregivers, or older siblings.

The Children’s Challenge is available for children ages 4-12. 12-year-olds can choose to participate in either the Children’s Challenge or the Teen Challenge.
